Bong Joon-ho Excited Ahead of His New Film's Premiere at Cannes

Bong Joon-ho's much-anticipated film"Okja"is set to be released late next month.

Along withHong Sang-soo's "The Day After - 2017", his film has been invited to this year's Cannes Film Festival, which opens this week.

"I'm a bit nervous as we approach the premiere at Cannes", Bong said during a press event for the film in Seoul on Monday. "But I'm confident the film will keep viewers engrossed for two solid hours".

Netflix put up US$50 million to make the film, whose star-studded cast includes Hollywood A-listersTilda SwintonandJake Gyllenhaalalongside Korean actressAhn Seo-hyun. Swinton, who also starred in Bong's previous film"Snowpiercer", said she agreed to appear in the movie as soon as she saw Bong's storyboard sketches.

"It's the first time I've dealt with a love story, albeit one involving a girl and an animal", Bong said.

The film follows the story of a little girl who risks everything to prevent a multinational company from kidnapping her best friend -- a massive genetically modified pig named Okja.
